All of us at Homespun were very saddened to learn of the sudden passing, in April, of the excellent keyboard player Tim Alexander. Tim played piano and accordion for the acclaimed Texas swing band Asleep at the Wheel for 12 years before leaving the road to continue as a session musician in the Dallas area. His excellent "The Real Honky Tonk Piano," as well as his work with Norteño master Flaco Jimenez on "Tex-Mex Accordion," made him a Homespun favorite. Tim was a warm, sincere and good-hearted person as well as a first-rate musician. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go out to his loved ones and many friends and musical colleagues.
